What Will The World Be Like After The Epidemic?

laitman_627.1After the coronavirus epidemic, the world will become different and new. The virus came in order to clean out all the garbage from us. There is nothing harmful in nature. The virus makes room for goodness to appear.

All the garbage that fills the human society we have built will be washed away and will open the opportunity to fill our relationships with kindness and love, building a beautiful bright world for our children and grandchildren.

Let us hope that we can do this, that we will not drag all the hatred and competition into the new world, i.e., the behavior by which we destroy the globe and doom ourselves to death from climate disasters and wars. We are capable of building a new world right now.

Governments are now investing billions of dollars hoping to return to the past. But God forbid we return to our former state. I do not think this would be good for any country. After all, even before the virus, we were already in crisis facing the threat of war, financial and industrial collapse. The confrontation between America, Russia, China, and Europe grew.

We should not return to the old world; there was nothing good in it for citizens, countries, the army, finance, industry, or trade. We devastated the globe pumping out all the resources from it. We must not allow even thinking about returning to the world of yesterday; only a madman can think of that.

No one enjoyed such a life; we deceived ourselves as if we were doing well. But what was good about it? What have we seen in life? Now is the time to cleanse human society from all the garbage it was clogged with. As we filled the oceans with plastic and radioactive waste, so did we litter human society.

We need to build a new world, a good one. Let this virus help us think and realize where we ended up. Compared to the problems that threatened us before, today’s epidemic is simply nothing. It is a great mercy of the Creator that He corrects us in such a gentle manner.

Never return to the old world—only strive forward, toward a new world in which there will be no work for ten hours a day, many hours of idle time in traffic jams, abandoned children, and life in perpetual debt. Let us all together take one step forward and not return to the old world. Let us consider how we can move only forward, and above all, think about new relationships.

We are now home in quarantine and we must come out as new people in order to start connecting with each other in a new way. What is the new way? While we are forced to stay at home, we will get a good piece of a new upbringing for living in a new world, in a new society. Everyone understands that this is necessary, so let’s do it. Otherwise, what kind of world will we leave our children and grandchildren?

What The Coronavirus Teaches Us

Dr Michael LaitmanHumanity has come a long way in its development and has reached the point that it begins to feel like one organism. We need to thank the coronavirus for bringing the whole world to such unity. If this epidemic drags out, then humanity will discover that we indeed belong to one system, and we are all dependent on each other.

So far, this dependence is expressed in the fact that from fear of infection, I close myself off from others and disconnect from the negative connection.

But let’s start revealing positive dependence. If we connect correctly, we will begin to produce positive viruses. 

Right now nature is unveiling harmful viruses to us as the revelation of evil. But then we must continue this process for the realization of goodness, we will find out that by uniting with one another, we can achieve tremendous success.

The main solution is not in the cessation of air flights or revival of a paralyzed economy, but in the connection between people. The virus will begin to disappear if there is at least a slight shift toward unification, and then we will see that we don’t want to break ties with each other because we want to connect. And we want to contact each other not to wander around the world again from end to end, but because we want to connect with people. 

The previous connection was poor, but now we will build a good connection. It is this medicine that we want to use in this critical condition: to restore our connection, but on a whole different level, being kind instead of using one another. By virtue of our connection, we defeat any evil, any virus, and come to a good life.

Nature will lead us to this goal anyway, and if we ourselves are willing to move toward it, we won’t have to get infected with different viruses along the way. It all depends on our request for the correction of relationships between people. This knowledge should be spread throughout the world in all forms: in thoughts, conversations, and actions. And then the higher power, nature, will do its job. A higher power binds all parts of creation together. And we want to correct the human level where the shattering occurred, return it to its unity so we can see it in its true form not distorted by our selfish vision. By correcting ourselves, we correct reality.

The coronavirus reveals our negative dependence on one another to us. First, we discover that we are unable to survive without working together, without earning from one another. It should be clear to everyone that each of us is being sustained by the whole world. But all this can be continued only on condition that our connection becomes positive. A negative connection destroys humanity and we cannot continue to exist in this form. The world will fall into such a state that a person will have nothing to eat or breathe.

Imagine how beautiful life will become if humanity is united, like all other parts of nature, inanimate, vegetative and animate, into one integral system where everyone includes all others in himself. Where can we get a force that will unite us into one organism, sew and glue us into one system? It is obvious that in such a perfect system everyone will feel good. Of course, if it becomes clear to us that a kind look at another person immediately cures us of the coronavirus, everyone on earth would instantly become righteous.

But this is not what the higher power requires of us. A person needs to realize that he should strive for bestowal, not for selfish gain, think about others, not about himself. And when everyone feels good, then he will too stop being sick.

In the meantime, while the epidemic continues, we have something to learn from this…

A House Needs A Wise Woman

laitman_531.03We see that the role of women is growing in the modern world: women are becoming stronger and gaining more and more influence. They are more in control of their desires and more goal-oriented.

The weakness of women is in the fact that they need male support to realize their goals. But as soon as women receive such support, they are able to complete an execution that men are incapable of.

I hope that in the future women will have a greater access to world leadership in the correct and natural cooperation with men. The world will then cease to be as primitive and corrupted as it was when led by men while women were staying at home taking care of children and households. We see that what is happening now is the opposite: the further the world moves toward the end of correction, the more power women gain.

Every man is afraid of his wife. It is because a woman takes care of the house, she rules it. It is a characteristic feature of our time. Rabash joked, saying about someone: “This is a righteous man; he is not afraid of anyone except the Creator and his wife.” And there is truth in it indeed.

Now in many cities women have been elected mayor. Why not? If a woman can control a house, then she can well control a city. A man is more distracted and not very suitable for this role. A man is stronger, but a woman is more reasonable and able to support different systems at the same time.

Just as she copes at home with all her responsibilities at the same time: laundry, meals, children, and a thousand different things on top of it; and everything is in order. Try to remove a woman from the house so that a man runs the whole house alone, and within a week the apartment will turn into a garbage dump.

So it is written: “A woman is a house.” But is not a country and the world our home? A woman lacks only male support, and everything will be settled. I am sure that if women were at the head of all governments, they would establish peace in the world. No matter how difficult it would be for women to agree with each other, they would come to an agreement, because a woman is ready to agree and incline herself for the sake of achieving peace.

Men and women should feel like equal partners, each one reasonably perceiving their role and knowing that if, by virtue of the qualities given to us by nature, we replenish each other to one complete perfection, then this will be a correction.

It is written in the book “Sefat Emet,” in the portion Pinchas “About Adam it is written that two creations were created, that is, it is in man’s power to attract the glow from the future world. Male power draws the soul from the upper world, and female power completes the action of correction in this world.” A woman is a vessel receiving the illumination, and the strength of a man is in order to attract this glow from above for the sake of bestowal, that is, by means of intention.

The Epidemic Is Not Punishment But Remedy

laitman_961.2Throughout history, we have received many signs of attention from the Creator, the good that does good. But by existing in egoistic qualities that are opposite to the Creator, we have perceived these manifestations of love and care as blows and did not feel the need to change.

This is how loving parents push their child to learn while he only wants to play, does not listen to them, and thinks that his parents hate him.

This is exactly what is happening in the world—crises, wars, disasters, epidemics—the path of suffering that humanity has gone through. And this is because we have refused to accept the governance of the Creator as absolutely good and always bringing good, that is, to adjust ourselves to this governance.

We wanted to run away from the instructions of the Creator like children who do not listen to their parents and hide and argue all the time. This is why our life has been so bitter until today.

But now we are experiencing a special blow like no other. It comes to calm down the entire world, all of humanity, and to make us as one whole. Just as parents lose their patience and tell the children: “That is enough, calm down now!” And they take such a strict action that they actually calm down.

The upper governance is descending and closing in on us more and more, beginning to deal with us closely, individually, and directly.

Why did humanity take this blow so hard? Why does the coronavirus hold us in such fear? We are used to many people dying and being born each year in every country. Why are we so scared of this particular virus?

We know that within a hundred years the entire population of the world will change: everyone will die and new people will be born, but we do not make a tragedy out of it. The virus, however, is a psychological blow. A hidden pest is between us, we do not see or feel it, and we do not know where it will strike us from.

However, the virus really acts for our benefit by ordering us to distance ourselves from each other and not to leave the house. It is as if it tells me: “If you cannot treat each other nicely, stay at home! And if a little bit of goodness appears, you can come out but keep a distance of ten meters between you.”

The virus shows us our true relationships: that we are unable to stay together, and if we connect, we pass viruses to each other because we are egoists. This virus is the revelation of the upper governance.

The virus separates people from each other to the extent of their egoism. It forces them to stay at home instead of engaging in all sorts of useless, far-fetched things. It shows us a better kind of connection that we can have. And it did not come to harm and kill us but to organize our life correctly. This is the hand of the Creator educating us with mercy.

The epidemic is not punishment but the remedy. The virus cools down our relationships fueled by egoism, the desire to win, succeed, and exploit others for personal gain. It halts this entire race.

Stepping Over Into One Heart

laitman_275The virus separates us physically, but because of it, we begin to look for ways to connect more internally. The lack of physical connection awakens us and helps us understand that we need inner closeness.

Let there be an infinite distance between us, but we will still step over it and feel like “one man with one heart” and not just that we are in the same room. Then, in this common heart, we will feel the Creator within us.

Let’s Make This An Epidemic Of Kindness

laitman_567.04The burdening of the heart is given to us in order to ensure our freedom of choice. The global crisis, which has engulfed the world due to the coronavirus epidemic, shows how the upper force deals with each person, leaving us the opportunity for free choice so that we would balance good and evil, building a middle line, and always leaning toward the good.

The coronavirus reveals to every person, every country, and the entire world the truth about our relationships. It forces us to sit at home locked up and think about why this is happening and for what purpose?

If we ourselves realize that we can live differently, not the way we used to live, but in harmony with nature, in good relations with each other, rising above our egoism, then we will not have to go through a long and painful crisis. We can get out of this epidemic very quickly. The virus shows us how much we have put the world out of balance.

Each time the Creator arranges a situation that is more effective for correction for us. Therefore, the coronavirus epidemic and quarantine are beneficial for the world’s correction. The virus shows us that we are incapable of being together.

Instead of transmitting good and useful things to each other, we transmit disease and condemn each other to death. So let us learn how to connect with good connections in order to transmit good emotions, pleasure, joy, love, unity, and warmth to each other. This is what is supposed to be between people.

Let us scrutinize why we are transmitting a deadly virus to each other and how to turn this evil into good in order to move toward a new world. I really hope that we will understand this ourselves and be able to explain this to everyone.

The Virus Softens Our Hearts

laitman_565.02We are in a special period of preparation to leave Egypt. This is a multilateral preparation because we need to realize that we are being held in Egyptian slavery under the rule of Pharaoh, our egoism, which entangles us and disallows us to escape.

We need to feel connected, as if we were in straitjackets, in the captivity of our own egoism, which rules over all of our thoughts, desires, and movements. The more we will feel this alien power, the further we will be able to advance toward the exit and attain a desire to escape from egoism.

Every day we will increasingly feel the power of egoism. The coronavirus will help us realize that we have always been slaves of Pharaoh even though we did not notice it. Our whole past life was arranged according to the laws, rules of conduct, and program of Pharaoh.

The whole world is Egypt, but people do not feel like slaves of an evil ruler. Instead, they consider their lives to be normal under a good king who cares about them. Pharaoh demands nothing from us except to honor his laws and worship his values.

This is how things used to be. Suddenly, a foreign power called the coronavirus appeared and shows us how disgusting our relationships are and how unbearable the power of Pharaoh is. This becomes evident if one exits it and looks at it from the side instead of accepting it as inevitability and the law of nature.

It is necessary for us to revise all the industrial and family ties that we built before as well as our attitudes toward life and death. We must not go back to our old ways. This virus is giving us an opportunity to sort out our past state. Let’s analyze it and find out if we want to go on with our lives as though nothing happened.

Did we like that kind of life? What kind of joy did we experience traveling from place to place all the time buying everything that advertisements enticed us to buy? All our life was built according to the template imposed on us by the media and advertisements that dictated how to think, what to buy, and how to act.

A full revision is the first step in our correction. We will try to evaluate what was good and what was bad. Then, we will imagine a new state, a new life, and how we could change it. After all, even before the epidemic, our lives were not cloudless.

We did not choose how to live; our egoism chose for us and pushed us to build the type of society, environment, and world that was convenient for it. It turned us into nature’s enemies. We destroyed it; we burned and killed plants and animals so that there is no longer any place on earth where we can live normally.

We built concrete houses in which we hide from everyone, and we are afraid of each other. Our children have gone even further and they hide inside computers so they have nothing left but the artificial world that we created for them.

The coronavirus, which has shaken us so hard, gives us the opportunity to see where we are, where we have arrived, and who we are, so proud of our minds, enlightenment, and freedom, who could build a different type of life for ourselves.

Maybe we are just animals developing according to the egoistic program of nature installed in us? Egoism forces us to build relationships that lead to war, destruction, and global crisis.

We have long expected a crisis to break out. But suddenly, the coronavirus appeared in its place. This is something new: not a financial crisis nor a war, but a crisis of our relations. First of all, the virus is breaking our ties. is forcing everyone to isolate themselves and to fear one common threat. Today, all the inhabitants of this world are afraid of one common thing. it is good that we are not afraid of each other but of one common enemy.

Maybe, amid the fear of coronavirus, we can better connect with each other, help one another, get closer, and feel that we belong to one humanity? It turns out that coronavirus is our friend and assistant, the pointer of the Creator from above? After all, He was able to resolve our discord and unite us!

Imagine that you have many children who constantly quarrel with each other, fight, and curse, and you don’t know how to calm them down. Now suddenly, something appears that resolves the fight, moves the children away from each other, and instead of the claims against each other, something external gives them a general alarm. A common misfortune brings us together, and gives us a reason to think about one thing and feel in unison.

Let’s see in this virus a means of drawing closer to each other; it softens our hearts. Although we associate it with deprivations and fears, this is not so, it comes out of love. It comes to us with love, not with a stick, hatred, or threat.

Instead of separating us from each other, the virus will give us the opportunity to build new relationships between us. The virus expresses our egoism because it settles down where there is egoism. It turns out that we need to look not for a virus, but for egoism, and so we will reveal our evil more and more and move away from it. And having turned our attitude into a good one, we will heal everything with this attitude.

We will be able to hug each other without fear of infections or viruses. The whole world will be connected with good, friendly ties. Each one will think, first of all about what good means in the eyes of the other, and then approach him accordingly.

That is, I rise above my egoism, find out what is good in the opinion of other people, and build connections with them on this basis. This resembles the order of spiritual work: self-restriction, screen (refusal to work with one’s desires), and the reflected light (the desire to bestow according to one’s perception of the good).

It turns out that every crisis has been given for our benefit. It is written that “No one is cruel in the king’s domain.” One only needs to advance quickly day by day, and the most important thing is not physical actions but spiritual ones.

Otherwise, the opportunity for correction that this virus provides us will dissipate. Then nature will push us with tougher measures, and we should not wait for them. Let’s advance in it’s direction and help it of our own freewill.
